Your London Wedding - July/August 2022 (Issue 84)

FRENCHchic Luxury, high-end vibes were at the heart of this shoot Being inspired by the beautiful Orangery at Gunnersbury Park, photographer Charlene Webb, gathered a team of local creatives to bring her vision to life. “I wanted to create something luxury and high end, while showcasing the stunning grounds,” she explains. “When I visited the venue, it was as if I was teleported into France with parts of the grounds emulating a French chateau. This gave me the inspiration for the mood board,” says Charlene. For the styling, the tablescape was classic in its design with hints of green from the foliage. “I added lilac and purple to the floral installations around the fireplace, they looked amazing,” she adds. The stairs were lined with similar floral displays adding to the chic elegant design. When it came to the attire, Charlene opted for a romantic style. “I chose dresses that were whimsical, and our brides’ hair and make-up was also inspired by French chic with the elegant wave and updo,” she says. The décor, surroundings and the bride and groom’s styling all came together perfectly to create this gorgeous shoot. LOCAL INSPIRATION 63
